    [UK] BBC F1 Coverage

    Post by Ross on 28th February 2009, 07:05

    The BBC have revealed an outline of the services they will provide viewers for the 2009 season after gaining exclusive UK rights from ITV.

    They have highlighted the plans on their website:


    The BBC will be providing comprehensive coverage of the 2009 Formula One season across all its platforms.
    F1 returns to BBC television for the first time in 12 years and there will be extensive coverage on network TV, red button, radio, online and mobile.

    BBC One will carry live coverage of all 17 Grands Prix and every qualifying session except that in Brazil, which will be shown on BBC Two.

    And every single on-track session can be watched on the red button or online.
    Jake Humphrey will present the TV coverage, joined by 13-time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard and former team boss Eddie Jordan as pundits.

    Jonathan Legard will commentate alongside award-winning broadcaster and former F1 driver Martin Brundle.
    The pit lane reporters will be Ted Kravitz and Lee McKenzie.

    F1 fans will be able to customise their viewing experience through the BBC's multi-platform offering with options such as: split-screen action; a live leaderboard; in-car cameras; choice of commentary; live online streaming; live text; interactive forums; circuit guides; and blogs.


    Television Coverage

    Every race and qualifying session will be shown live on BBC One, with the exception of qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix on 17 October, which will be shown on BBC Two.

    All races and qualifying sessions that finish before 1000 will have a full repeat on either BBC One or Two later that day.

    There will be a one-hour evening highlights programme at 1900 UK time on BBC Three for all races except Brazil.
    Full schedule of BBC TV F1 coverage.


    Red Button

    The BBC's red button interactive TV service will broadcast live coverage of all on-track sessions - Friday and Saturday practice, qualifying and race.

    There will be an additional interactive analysis programme following on from the end of the BBC One coverage of each race.

    On race day, viewers will be able to choose from three different video streams.

    These will be: the main network feed with a choice of commentary from BBC One and BBC Radio 5 Live; a split screen comprising the main network feed; an in-car camera feed and leaderboard; rolling highlights.


    Radio

    Radio 5 Live will again be providing extensive coverage and live commentary of all on-track action - on 5 Live on 909 and 693MW and 5 Live Sports extra on digital radio.

    David Croft will be the commentator, with former F1 driver Anthony Davidson as the expert analyst and Holly Samos as pit-lane reporter.

    The station will continue with its half-hour 5 Live Formula One show on Friday evenings during race weekends.
    It also has the Chequered Flag Podcast which is available after every race and features interviews with all the main players and in-depth analysis.


    Online

    The BBC Sport website will carry live all BBC One, BBC Two and red button coverage of F1.

    There will be multiple live video streaming, which will mirror what is available on the red button.

    For the first time, video will be available in high quality, enabling viewers to watch on the internet near-television quality video.

    In addition to the live text commentary and news and analysis which was already a feature of the website, there will be a number of new features for 2009.

    These will include: extensive post-race video highlights; video race reviews by Murray Walker; interactive circuit guides; several blogs, including a diary-type F1 mole; columns; and comprehensive results and statistics.

    The new-look BBC F1 website will be launched in the run-up to the season.

    Mobile users will be able to access the latest news, insight and results.

    Lewis Hamilton starts his defence of the drivers' title he won in dramatic style last year in Melbourne, Australia, on 29 March.

    We will provide further details of our coverage plans closer to that date.
